Purpose: This Randomized Control Trial study aimed to compare between two designs of Precision Attachment Unilateral Removable Partial Denture, one conventional design and the other modified with bracing arm and mesial rest.
Materials and Methods: twenty male patients having Kennedy Class II mandibular edentulous ridges received the two designs in a split mouth study for a follow-up period of eighteen months. Probing Pocket Depth around abutment was measured. A standardized radiographic technique was used to evaluate bone height changes.
Results: The results showed insignificant pocket depth and bone height changes in the two groups.
Conclusion: Precision Attachment Unilateral Removable Partial Denture proved to be a viable treatment therapy in treating unilateral edentulous ridges.
